This new clip has emerged online from ‘iLL Manors,’ the highly anticipated directorial debut of pioneering British music artist Ben Drew (aka Plan B). The clip shows the films protagonist Aaron, played by Riz Ahmed, caught up in a stop and search situation with the Metropolitan London Police. ‘iLL Manors’ is described as “a bold and visually stunning crime thriller, harrowing and shocking yet laced with street–wise humour. Set in the backdrop of the unforgiving streets of London, the film follows six disparate lives, all struggling to survive the circles of violence that engulfs them.”

The story for the film revolves around a series of events that inter–weave between characters and their narrative interplay; Junkie Michelle (Anouska Mond) is looking for her next hit, leading her to cross a destructive path with the raw and menacing thuggary of Ed (Ed Skrein), the local drug–dealer. Newly released from prison, ex–drug dealer Kirby (Keith Coggins), attempts to readjust back into the treacherous streets that put him away 15 years ago, and in doing so encounters local gangster Chris (Lee Allen), on his own warpath, and out for revenge. The youngest of them all is Jake (Ryan De La Cruz Indianda), who finds a dark and icy acceptance in a local gang lead by Marcel (Nickolas Sagar). The outsider, Katya (Natalie Press), races through the London streets to escape her sex traffickers and stumbles upon Aaron (Riz Ahmed), the central protagonist, just trying to do the right thing – but torn between his head and his heart. Look out for ‘iLL Manors’ in cinemas June 6th.
